No Widescreen, No Extras, No good,
This review is from: Slipstream [DVD] (DVD)
Despite what the tech specs say this IS NOT widescreen and even if it was a 1.85:1 transfer this wouldn't be correct as the film was shot in 2.35:1. This is a just about watchable 4:3 Pan & Scan edition exactly the same transfer as used on the rental video release.
If anyone is thinking of giving this film a real release there is the Original Trailer & Making of Featurette (which I think ITV have in their archives as filler) to think of as extras and I also have the original theatrical booklet if anyone wants a scan.

To add to the irony, this film was actually the first film produced by the video label that released it in the UK, so they have access to the original widescreen negative and extras. They even released that half hour making of on video as a promo when the film came out. It wasn't a cheap movie and they lost a fortune on it, so the obviously don't want to spend any more money on it, though I'd have thought they might have put at least some effort into it and promoted it on the strength of the director of Tron and the producer of the first two Star Wars films - not that that did them any good when it opened.
